Disgaea is one of my favourite Strategy Rpg for the PS2 I'm glad to make this review of the first part of the Disgaea Series. Disgaea Hour of Darkness was released in Japan on January 30,2003, August 27, 2003 for the USA and July 1, 2004 for the EU. Disgaea was release on the PSP and the Nintendo Ds later on and i happen to own all 3 versions. The soundtrack of Disgaea is great the music sucks you in and the the 2D sprites have a lush colour palette what really helps this game pull you in to this amazing story.

Otaku Review: Steins;Gate
NOTE: This review is spoiler free or at most reveals minor plot points or notes established at the very least on the website where you can buy Steins;Gate from. The one exception is a paragraph in white further below, which you can highlight if you wish to read it, although it does contain a significant spoiler. You have been warned.
Price: Varies (see the link for available retailers)
Release Date: Out Now
I’m going to let you in on a secret here, or perhaps more an unwritten rule.
Plot holes do not matter if A) the characters are the driving force of a given narrative and B) the plot holes do not significantly undermine the growth or arcs of said characters.
I bring this up because there is no genre of fiction more fragile, more intrinsically susceptible to plot holes, than that of time travel. While writing this review, as something to have on in the background, I was watching Terminator 2: Judgment Day. There one could bring up a myriad of plot holes from the time travel elements, but as I mentioned before, they matter not one jot in the face of a compelling character driven narrative like in that film.
But what the devil does this have to do with Steins;Gate, you might ask? Well, Steins;Gate arguably fits in the same category as Terminator II (minus the wonderful Arnie moments), in that if one took a long, hard look at it, like a house of cards built on the San Andreas fault it would all fall apart easily. But stories are not houses even though people might live in them, and a shaky foundation is not necessarily to the detriment of the overall product. Especially not when said product is a great comedy, romance, thriller and love letter to nerd culture all rolled into one.
